is a moment i think may replicate itself in general election debates. i cannot imagine obama will let this question and the tax returns go unremarked. what you see there is a couple of things. romney really pivots. he uses the initial question to swing us over to obama and the democrats and how they are against wealth, supposedly. there is also the reaction from the audience. one of the thing that was striking about this year's round of primary debates was the role of that live audience and how they became the influence and how people are perceiving them. in general election debates, the audiences seem to be much more behave. clearly, the audience played a big part in the whole tone of that clip you showed. >> warren decker, these candidates have lines and talking points. how you come across conversationally rather than sound like somebody who is regurgitating the talking points you have been rehearsing? >> that is probably one of the most difficult things you could ever do. i think it is one of those things that you can try to do it and improve your ability to do it by practicing

for me to hear democrats -- the views on how obama somehow won this debate but i don't see that as t all. i just don't see how obama answered any of the questions. he has lied over and over again about the $5 trillion tax cuts. on abc last night, jon karl said that is mostly fiction. multiple times. yes, both of them -- we are going to hear -- there wasn't much of a difference between both of them. i did not see obama differentiate himself -- >> you are planning to vote for mitt romney? >> yes, sir. >> thanks for the culprit last caller -- thanks for the call. at last caller on the independent line. >> i watched the debate last night on mute. >> did you watch it with closed caption? >> yes. i wanted to see the body language. i thought barack obama looked relaxed, a little too relaxed. overall, the body language, and then when i read the text, i think mitt romney shows a lack of integrity. that was the thing that kind of really bothered me, because he looked into the camera and said things that have been tested as far as being mostly false. i do believe that the president missed som

it. the math does not add up. >> president obama at his last campaign stop before tonight's debate. now, mitt romney speaking to reporters on monday. >> now, you know that you are going to get visitors this week. we are going to have a debate. there's a lot of interest surrounding the debate. people want to know who is going to win, who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make, and there is going to be all this scoring of winning and losing. in my view, it is not so much winning and losing or even the people themselves. it is about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the path way forward for america we will choose, and the american people will have to choose what kind of america they want. i am delighted that we are going to of three debates. it will be a conversation with the american people that will span almost an entire month. we will get to describe our respective views did i believe that the people of colorado will choose a better way forward for our country. we

debates same as it did to ralph nader. gary has great ideas. i was a big backer of barack obama but gary johnson is real what do you think we'll do about wall street and our present industrial complex? the cd coming collapse of the collapse of the dollar? our dollar is not going to be worth 70 cents if somebody does not do something. guest: it will be a bond market collapse. right now treasury is printing money. the banks are not giving it to they are buying of treasurys in a closed loop. where they can make money at no risk whatsoever. this is not fair. this is absolutely not fair. the inequities go on and on. steve, perhaps you can help me out with the second part of that question. host: i think we lost the caller. bestride jeffrey in nevada -- let's try jeffrey in nevada. caller: republicans and democrats are on different sides of the same totem pole. you will get the same outcome. but for a guy like you, there is a change that we need and believe in. guest: i will offer up a prediction. if either obama or romney are elected, we will find ourselves in a continued state of war. mi

presidential campaign this morning, but there are a couple of senate debate this morning that c-span will carry live that you have been covering. what's been happening in wisconsin? >> it has been one of the most interesting senate races. very competitive. president obama seems to have pulled ahead by about five points in the latest poll. some of that has helped changed the trajectory of the race. earlier this month, the republican governor tommy thompson seemed to have momentum. at this point his rival tammy baldwin seems to be within the margin of error or a little to head out >> . why is that? guest: my best guess is that the baldwin surge corresponds with president obama getting some distance from romney. it still is competitive. governor thompson was perceived the best republican nominee. he had a very competitive primary. so wisconsin suddenly was back in the republican column. host: this tonight their first and only debate? guest: i don't know, but it's going to be an interesting evening, because governor thompson is a statewide grand. he's known as tommy and not the governor. he w

its ups and downs. at the debate last night, the bank act it obama on the $5 trillion deficit -- they fact- checked obama on the $5 trillion deficit, which was truly the romney mendacity -- on romney's front, i forget what they were fact checking but it was much more serious. you need a voices inside and outside the democratic party, citizens of conscience, to call out when they hear the media not getting to the bottom of the issue. our media, let's be honest, has treated the campaign as a horse race. look at the debate. as i mentioned earlier, it was treated more like a theater performance than actually grappling with the substance. president obama, if you look of the coverage, i'm sure 92% of it had more to do without disengage he was then the actual substance -- with how to disengage he was then the actual substance. that is not helping for a country that prides itself on being a democracy with engaged and knowledgeable citizens. host: we are almost out of time. i will try to get two students in. guest: i will be brief. host: bolivia is a political science major. >> my question has

. here is part of a 2008 debate between senator john mccain and then senator barack obama. >> the conversation i had with joe the plumber, what i essentially said to him was, five years ago when you were in a position to buy your business, you needed a tax cut then. what i wanted to do was to make sure that the plumber, a nurse, the firefighter, the teacher, the young entrepreneur who does not yet have money, i want to give them a tax break now. that require some important choices. the last thing i want to make about small businesses, not only do 98% of small businesses make less than 21 for $50,000, but i want to give them additional tax breaks because they are the drivers of -- less than 250,000 boxes, but i want to give them additional tax breaks because they are the drivers of this economy. >> in other words, we are going to take joe's money, give it to senator obama, and let him spread the wealth around. i want joe the plumber to spread the wealth around. the whole pretense behind senator obama's plans are class warfare, let's spread the wealth around. i want small businesses

proposal or an obama proposal or a republican proposal or a democrat proposal. i am interested in what is in the debates in the next four weeks -- i am less interested in what is in the debates in the next four weeks and then what the vendor does in the weeks after the election. >> why would you like to hear -- what would you like to hear obama say in the weeks after the election? >> we are not going to have a deal that does not have revenues and spending. the biggest obstacle is on the revenue side. i believe i have asked democratic senators if my perception is correct, and they say yes. republicans keep thinking that in the 11th hour, democrats will relent again. one of the things the president has to do is to make it crystal clear that he is damned serious and he will not accept the deal. let's just this lay that out there. once that becomes accepted, that is my fear of war we go into january. i think we will have to go into january because republicans will not believe it until then. that is the predicate to getting a bipartisan deal. >> i want to follow up on an issue that daud raised
